Windscreen

Hey Guys,
Have any of you installed a taller windscreen on your rides.
I find if I slouch I get less wind in my face. I'd like to be able to sit up straight while riding.
Thanks,
GG


It is as clear as mud now...

There are lots of replacements available and lots of discussions here about them.
Most that have replaced theirs have done so with a taller one.
The easiest way to browse through all of the discussions is to go to the Advanced search in the top right corner.
Type in windshields and then click search. I bet you come up with a 1000 hits easily.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

I have a Tulsa extra tall on my 1500. I love it. My wife loves it. Less buffeting for her than the stock shield. A vent and also wind wings are needed with it however in order to get some air flow to the body especially when the temps are up there. I'm like you, I don't really like the wind in my face when on the road. :D (Uh oh! did I just commit the cardinal sin of motorcycling?) ;) The Tulsa is a very high quality shield. Thicker than most and no distortion at all.

I have the same Tulsa Tall on my GL1500. It is wonderful in cold weather, and also in the rain. It is less wonderful in hot weather, when I depend on the windshield vent, hand wings and wind wings to bring some cooling air in. Even then I find myself wishing the vent was bigger, or the windshield was smaller. Perhaps something that could be added to the edges of the windshield, that captured the air being displaced around the sides and instead redirected that air inward towards the rider.

The passenger reports much less buffeting thanks to this windshield however.
